Each pipe tends to be a work of art. For a well seasoned collector, knowing the markings on a pipe is important for several reasons. Below is some information from just one website I found intriguing. Later, I hope to apply my own knowledge to this page, but for now, this will have to do.
Pipesmagazine.com – I have started to not only read the articles, but have become a member of this awesome site. It’s very active and full of great conversations.
Pipedia.Org – The Wikipedia for pipes
My Pipes Community – A great site! I just started a profile here and these are a great bunch of people. I’m sure I’ll be able to find a lot of information here like I did over at pipes.org.
Pipes.Org Forum – This web forum has been a great help to ask questions, discuss tobacco blends, share our collections, and just enjoy conversation that is pipe related. I haven’t perused this site in the manner of posting, but I have used the search function quite often.
Pipephil.eu – One of the best places to find markings and logos.
Ces pipes pas comme les autres – An online translation says this phrase is “These pipes not as the others” This site has a huge amount of information on pipes, their markings and some of the more unique pipes produced.
PipeTrader – A German website full of pipes. The link provided is the link to the google translated site into English. There are some amazing pipes available here.
